Postdoctoral Scholars at Baylor

Postdoctoral Scholars at Baylor

Baylor University’s pursuit of R1/Tier 1 research status requires a dedicated team effort. Postdoctoral scholars are vital to Baylor University’s research enterprise, working with faculty and students alike to advance research objectives, provide mentorship and advance human knowledge and discovery.

Shortly after Baylor adopted the strategic plan of Illuminate and announced plans to pursue Tier 1 research recognition, the University invested over $10 million in a postdoctoral hiring program to more than double the number of postdoctoral scholars on campus over a five-year period.

“The postdoc program will help Baylor University attract the highest caliber research faculty,” Provost Nancy Brickhouse, Ph.D., said. “This program will signal that we are serious about our aspirations to have a greater impact on the world through our research and scholarship. Postdoctoral researchers will be working in existing Baylor research programs, but will enable those programs to operate at a much higher level of productivity.”

As postdoctoral scholars increase in both number and impact at Baylor, the University is expanding the resources available to serve them through the Postdoctoral Scholars program.
